The verdict was initially scheduled for today, however the court didn’t provide any reasons for the postponement.

The retrial was initiated after the appeals chamber repealed a portion of the first instance verdict, which acquitted Kornjaca of the murder of civilians in a hunting lodge in May 1992 and the murder of civilians in the village of Brdo in the Cajnice area.

Under the first instance verdict handed down in May 2014, Kornjaca, the former commander of the Plavi Orlovi Unit of the Bosnian Serb Army, was found guilty of detaining and beating Bosniak civilians who were held in a metal container at Mostina. He was sentenced to five years in prison. This part of the verdict has been confirmed.
